Korean beef BBQ (Bulgogi) recipe
Hi everybody! I’m eventually posting a video for bulgogi today. I posted a simple bulgogi recipe a few years ago but it was without a video.
How to make the perfect pecan pie
This week, in honour of Thanksgiving, I've finally been let loose on one of my favourite American desserts. Despite its heavenly combination of rich nuttiness and caramel sweetness, as a speciality of the south, pecan pie wouldn't have featured on the first Thanksgiving table. In fact, it didn't put in an appearance until the late 19th century.
Chocolate Chocolate Chip Banana Bread
I always have the best of intentions when I buy barely yellow bananas at the grocery store. I have visions of healthy breakfast shakes, peanut butter and banana sandwiches, and healthy mid afternoon snacks. Without fail the bananas turn brown and speckled. They start to mush and sink into themselves. They just become all around unsexy.
Chocolate Caramel Cheesecake - Mrs. Penguin
Hellooooo, cheesecake. So I have to start out by talking about Orange is the New Black! I watched all of it in 3 days. Yeah, I don’t have a life. I laid around and watched it while stuffing cheesecake and cookies into my face.
Hot and spicy rice cake (Tteokbokki) recipe
When I lived in Korea I learned the secret to making good tteokbokki from a famous place in a market. It was run by an old lady who could always be found stirring her tteokbokki. People were lined up to buy it.
in the kitchen with: rigetta klint’s Æblekage
I was having lunch at an Italian restaurant last week when everyone at our table was attracted by the fig dessert on the menu. The waiter broke the news that it is too early for figs, but at the end of the apple season, so why not try an apple dessert. After her very popular beetroot pesto in March, Rigetta Klint, founder of Slow Fashion House, has shared her version of a traditional and very popular Danish dessert, æblekage. Translated into English it is “apple cake“, though you will see it is not exactly a “cake”. It is perhaps similar to an apple parfait! This version of the recipe makes the most of simple staples in the home: breadcrumbs, sugar, butter, and apples.
Carrot Cake Recipe
I set my sights on carrot cake this week. I suspect you've never made a carrot cake in this way before, and I'm here to encourage you to give it a go. Well, maybe. If you like your carrot cake delicate with a defined crumb, you'll actually want to pass on this one. This is an entirely different beast.
Authentic Indian Chai - A Spicy Perspective
How To Make Chai Tea… the authentic kind. Chai is the lifeblood of India. Served in scant shot glasses from dawn until way past dusk, this beverage is EVERYWHERE you look.
Cinnamon Sugar Pull-Apart Bread
I’m sorry. I know it’s Monday morning and you probably came here for some pretty pictures of food that you could glance at, and then move on with your day… and here I go thrusting warm, soft cinnamon sugar bread in your face. It’s not fair. I know it’s not fair. I know that now you’re craving cinnamon rolls, and cream cheese frosting and chili fries and hot dogs.
Chocolate and Grand Marnier Banana Cake
That’s what I’ve come up with after several attempts to produce a banana bread completely opposite in texture and flavor to the “traditional” banana bread – wet and sticking to your teeth, which is available, unfortunately, in almost every coffee shop throughout North America. My version is moist (don’t confuse with wet), fragrant, and chocolaty. My close friend, who spent most of her life in Budapest and Zurich and has very sophisticated taste as well as her own conception of what a dessert should be like, approved this cake. Makes one loaf, about 10 servings
Pork Shogayaki Recipe
Pork Shogayaki is another popular dish for lunch and dinner in Japan. The flavors of spicy ginger (shoga) and soy sauce with a touch of sweetness from Mirin taste great with steamed rice. It is not as sweet as a typical Teriyaki sauce. This tasty ginger sauce may stimulate your appetite, and you might have to watch out or you’ll be taking a second serving of rice. Pork Shogayaki is served at a lot of Japanese restaurants during lunch time. It is quick, tasty, and very reasonably priced; therefore, it is perfect for everyday lunch.
Apple Banana Coffee Cake with Chocolate Chip Streusel
The original recipe seemed huge, so I halved it. And I saw another blogger, Kristy using apple in this, so I followed suit, to add an apple to the batter. This recipe has been made by a lot of bloggers, just by googling you can find loads of them, but google without the apple word to find try-outs with the original recipe. Coffee cakes are cakes that are meant to be eaten with a cup of coffee, due to the sweetness, and they usually comes with streusel topping. So, don't be looking through my recipe searching for the coffee ingredient. No, it is non existent.
Egg Drop Soup Recipe
This Chinese egg drop soup from my friend and guest contributor Garrett McCord couldn’t be easier! It takes no more than 20 minutes to make start to finish, and is perfect for a quick, healthy meal. ~Elise
Chocolate Chip, Apricot and Hazelnut Cookie Slices
With Halloween being just one week behind us it seems a little bit crazy to be putting up a recipe that features chocolate in any form. Last Sunday and Monday I made a valiant effort to reduce the number of little chocolate bars that were hanging around and Max and Glen joined in to help. I ate mini Kit Kats and Oh Henrys and Aeros and even a Tootsie Roll or two. We still have a massive bowl of treats staring at me from the kitchen counter and yet by Wednesday I was longing for something with some good chocolate in it. Maybe with some nuts and/or dried fruit. Something homemade.
This was really good. it kept the bananas chunky which was a treat. by guttsu Oct 17
